Sadly, long-time Raglan artist and teacher, Peggy Lee, died last year during lockdown. To celebrate her creativity and talent, there will be a retrospective exhibition in the Raglan Old School Arts Centre from 8th to 29th May 2021. The Opening will be on the morning of Saturday 8th May, from 10.00 a.m. to 12.00 midday, where all are warmly invited to morning tea and viewing of the exhibition, which is being hosted by her sisters and sons.
Peggy loved Raglan and saw it as her spiritual home. She inherited a passion for nature from her father and specialised in landscapes and seascapes that captured the essence of Raglan, painting every nook and crannie of the harbour and surrounding farmland. Most of her paintings are watercolours or acrylic, and have been described as playing with impressionism, and with colour and abstract elements. Some of the more recent works will be for sale at the exhibition.
